Rowan Breaks ARMY Defense
Posted on October 22nd, 2016

LANCASTER (PA) AND HOLLYDELL (NJ) - ARMY WEST POINT earned its fifth straight victory to open the season on Friday night against Millersville, but was upended by a quick-strike Rowan attack on Saturday.

Millersville provided little resistance to a potent cadet offensive, closing within a goal at 2-1 in the second period until the Black Knights erupted for three straight goals to close out a 5-1 win.  Five different cadets - Cory Miller, Al Miller, Jake Brown, Mitch Deridder, and Jay Peterson - represented a balanced scoring attack for ARMY WEST POINT.

Rowan and ARMY WEST POINT waged a hard-hitting and competitive match-up through two periods, with the Professors carrying a 2-1 advantage into the third. Jay Peterson continued his stellar early freshman campaign with his fifth goal. The Profs and cadets traded goals and, midway through the third, ARMY WEST POINT trailed 3-2 after Mitch Deridder roofed the rubber disc.

The Black Knights outshot the Profs 34-26 on the game, but two quick Rowan goals shut down the cadet comeback. Several West Point shots off the post and an empty-net Rowan goal set the final score at 6-2.
